Corporate Opportunities

Colston Hall has been a home for music and events in Bristol and the South West for nearly 150 years. Bristol Music Trust (charity no. 1140898), the charity which runs Colston Hall, seeks to be the beating heart of music in Bristol and presents a diverse programme of life-enhancing experiences – from classical music to pop, rock, and comedy – attracting big names whilst also providing a platform for developing artists. We are developing an ever more popular artistic profile and last year welcomed almost 250,000 people through our doors.

We also provide a year-round programme of rich educational opportunities to thousands of young people through our educational arm, Bristol Plays Music. In the 2014/15 academic year, Bristol Plays Music delivered music lessons, courses and participatory activities to 40,000 children and young people across Bristol, bringing nearly 17,000 hours of music to young people in and around the city, including many from disadvantaged backgrounds or with special educational needs and disability.

The support of corporate partners and sponsors ensures we can continue this transformative work.

We offer a range of beneficial corporate opportunities that can help you to engage stakeholders and grow your business. These include:

  • Naming rights as part of Colston Hall’s £45 million transformation, the largest arts development in the South West
  • Exclusive event sponsorship
  • Bespoke marketing opportunities
  • Year-round corporate hospitality
  • Corporate social responsibility opportunities especially linked to our education programme
  • Employee engagement

Unlike other organisations, we do not offer set corporate packages. We instead work with all of our partners to build a bespoke package to suit your needs and ensure that the opportunity is truly tailored to your aims. You will be assigned a dedicated account manager to ensure that you have a continuous point of contact who fully understands your company.
